According to Daily Trust, some farmers said that the high registration fees charged by the ministry had made it impossible for them to offer their excess eggs for purchase by the government.

Governor Jang had released N30 million for the mop-up following the glut in the product to ease the losses being incurred by the poultry farmers following poor patronage.
